LET’S TRAVEL LITTLE ALBUM
Very often I try to see and try to use the dies that are offered to us in an alternative way. In fact, this time I want to show you how I made this album using the part that must form the outer matchbox. I die cut it six times from green colored papers: "Spring Flower", "Pastel Green Double Face", "Wooden Color 06" and from vellum and I glued them together on the narrow tongue.
I then die cut the tongue of the suitcase twice from the "Matchbox Suitcase Add On" dashboard for the album spine and the braces for the belt as a closure and I stamped the Let's Travel wording from the "Postage Travel" dashboard. I then decorated with the leaves of the "Branch 9" die cutting the leaves and reassembling the bouquet.
On the second page I made two pockets, one with a rectangle of paper and the other with the tongue of the suitcase and I stamped the words from the "Postage Travel" plaque and I inserted a photograph as a tag and the LOVE die in negative of the “Surprise Tag” die. I didn't throw away the letters LOVE because I used them at the end of the album on a picture.
On the parchment page I simply glued a green enamel dot and on the other side in correspondence I glued the smaller flower of the "Dream Flower" plank, to look like a sun.
On the following page I stamped the word Welcome Summer from the “Welcome” dashboard and pasted a photograph on the back. On the last page I cut out with the scissors the leaves from the patterned, decorated with the letters LOVE and stamped a sentiment.
This album is very simple and quick to do and useful when there are few photos of a special day.
Hoping to have inspired you again in your scrappy projects, I wish you a peaceful and relaxing summer!
